How about a yahoo group, like a Feature Film Club? where a movie would be picked (Feature Film? Prelinger Short? Hey Maybe a Siggraph short!) on a Friday, we'll have all weekend to watch it, then we'll chat (through email) about it, what we liked etc about this film, some trivia, and so on and so forth.

Just an idea, if you're interested say I here, or email me at luysad@yahoo.com

Good Idea. An imdependant chat group,outside the Archive, such as outlined, deserves great success.

I think a weekly film to discuss is a good idea.

I don't really like Yahoo Groups -too many ads, too poor of usability. I think we just need a full function threaded forum like Ultimate, PHPBB, or Gossamer.

Yea, I'm for a phpBB forum. All we need is someone to host it. I have skills in this area, but I don't have a good speed Inet now.

Freenode has a web chat interface now at http://webchat.freenode.net/ so an internet archive channel there now would make a great deal more sense now for newbies than back in 2004 :)

IRC can be really confusing to newbies, I think a forum is the best solution (Open to discussion ofcourse).

I believe that that question was raised in a Prelinger forum; the reply being that the IA was maxed out with space/bandwidth already (Witness the numbers of movies and sounds 'Not availible for viewing or downloading'

PS. Does anyone want to try this with their broadband connexion, I have experience with phpBB and will help anyone interested.

There's already a Prelinger Yahoo group - Archivists Talk. Why not use that?

Actually, the Yahoo group for Prelinger is:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/moviearchive/

But that group would hardly be appropiate for a movie chat group...
